King Lorik is the ruler of Alefgard in Dragon Warrior. He is the first to speak with the Hero and requests that the descendant of Erdrick defeat the Dragonlord and recover the Ball of Light. King Lorik gives the Hero 120G, a Torch, and a Magic Key to assist him in his quest. The Hero will also need to rescue his daughter, Princess Gwaelin, from a Green Dragon. King Lorik has the ability to tell the Hero how many experience points are needed to reach the next level and is the only person in Dragon Warrior that can record your deeds onto the Imperial Scrolls of Honor.
"Descendant of Erdrick, listen no to my words. It is told that in ages past Erdrick fought demons with a Ball of Light. Then came the Dragonlord who stole the precious globe and hid it in the darkness. Now, Hero, thou must help us recover the Ball of Light and restore peace to our land. The Dragonlord must be defeated. Take now whatever thou may find in these Treasure Chests to aid thee in thy quest. Then speak with the guards, for they have much knowledge that may aid thee. May the light shine upon thee, Hero."
